Engadget HD Podcast 291 - 03.20.2012

Trent Wolbe

We've got a few special treats for you this week, as podcast listener and frequent commenter Andrew Beck joins us on the show. Later on, we have an interview with DTS VP of Corporate Strategy and Development David McIntyre stops by to discuss the latest developments with Ultraviolet and the Common File Format. Of course, there's also a lot of HD news to cover this week, as the 1080p Apple TV arrived, Dish launched its latest multiroom DVR and Aereo's streaming TV service jumped in the game. There's plenty more to talk about, so press play and bask in the sound of a (welcome) third party's opinion.
